This might have been a thread already but, oh well...

 

Mine...I was 17ish and my Dad gave me his Saturn SL1. It was silver with blue cloth interior. I loved it!

1991 Lincoln Continental. That thing was a boat! Got it at 16 but my birthday is in winter so I wasn't allowed to drive it while there was snow/ice on the ground, which there seemed to be for most of that winter...needless to say I wasn't very happy about having a car and being able to be legally drive but still couldn't drive.

74 NOVA. Jogged, ran and bussed for years as I saved to buy a newer car. Driving to school after owning it for about 3 months, and someone crossed centerline and totaled me. I got out of the car and walked around it and it was trashed. The key point, I got out of the car and was able to walk. Looking at the car, you would not have thought that was a possibility.

82 Buick Regal. 14 years old when I bought it and started driving it. Had 6 subwoofers and 4 amplifiers in that mamma Jamma!!! I was one cool dude!! Used to drive around and pick up all of my friends til literally no one else would fit in and cruise around town before school. That is until my mom caught me and proceeded to pull me over and rip my ass in the middle of the street...still did it some after though!

1981 Mercury Crapi, err Capri. It had T tops that leaked and a rust hole in the drivers side back seat where you could literally see the road while sitting back there. I hated that car but it cost me 500 bucks.

1964 Ford Custom 500 4 door

It had previously been my grandpa's car. Like this pic except it was white.

It had an aftermarket air conditioning unit mounted under the center of the dash.

I used to cuss that car but I wish I had it now.

First car I bought - green 1967 Rambler

 

Best feature after locking the keys in my dad's car so often - there were no indoor door locks. You had to be outside and lock the door with the key.

A silver 1986 Chevrolet Classic Caprice with a soft top. Front row bench seating, it was a freakin boat.

 

Where I grew up we had a road everyone called the Roller Coaster Rd, one direction was more downhill than the other and as you went through a gully the street had many dips here and there where the concrete sank. I would coast at 25mph at the top of the road and peak at about 45-50mph before the end, often bumping our heads on the roof because of the dips. The suspension had gotten pretty bad by my senior year of high school and being such a long car it would make those dips even more prevelant, but also the tail end would bottom out and shoot sparks at night haha.

 

The brakes were also really sensitive until the car warmed up. Before I replaced the suspension, I would let the car lurch and pump the brakes, creating a rocking back and forth making it appear as though I had hydraulics...a couple girls actually asked if it was hydraulics, unfortunately both of them were dating good friends :(

My first car was my mom's old car, a 1972 Plymouth Scamp with a 318 v8. It had cotter pins (we called them boat locks) on the front hood. Blinker signals were on the front corners of the car.

 

It was black and white and looked really similar to this car, but with a different front end and hub caps.

 

http://www.curbsideclassic.com/curbside-classics-american/curbside-classic-1972-plymouth-scamp-a-tasty-little-number/

 

I drove this car for a year until I rolled it in a ditch/field when I lost control going 80+ on gravel. Sold the engine for more than the car was worth, so that wasn't a terrible result, but I would rather have the car than the money.

'89 Chevy Corsica. That thing went from 0 to 60 in about 2 minutes...

 

chevrolet-corsica-2.8-at--1988-19916-2.j

That made me chuckle in a manner that was audible and I was almost heard by my co-workers.

It was a great solid car that my buddies called the boat that brought us joy while going mudding, paint balling, stereo system, dates, etc.

 

Sadly an illegal immigrant w/ no license and insurance sideswiped the whole passenger side of the car totally it.....what a douche

1986 Buick Skyhawk. Total piece of crap. There was a dead moth in the dashboard and the pop-up sunroof leaked.

 

Had an 84, sunroof leaked bad on that one too. We used to take the sunroof out and take turns riding up top through main street. Until we got ticketed for unsafe riding.

Just curious why you had to point out he was an illegal immigrant. You could have just called him an a$$hole.

Nice, I had a 66 Rambler American for a couple of years in college. Had Vacuum wipers. I really like the car. It died my Sr year. My first car was a 71 Nova, that a friend of the family gave me.

1968 Pontiac Tempest that I bought for $500 when I was 15. (Yeah, 15. Before I had a license or even a learner's permit. lol). It looked about like the one below, except a little more beat up and without chrome wheels or a hood scoop. :lol:

Got a 2006 Subaru Impreza 2.5i when I was 16 - got it as a lease (with my parents as co-signers) but was able to pay the whole thing myself while working in HS and college. Eventually, I even bought the damn thing and paid it off just a few years ago!
